Giving back the community through cooking shows

I haven't had money to donate to needed organizations, but I found a way to give back to those in need by providing free cooking classes to women at a local women's shelter. I met a director of a shelter at the fair this summer. She was interested in a fall fundraising cooking show. As we were talking, there was a need for demoing how to cook. I offered to share my knowledge of cooking delicious, and quick meals. It was like "Top Chef" I looked in the cupboards. We only have to work with what has been donated. They had top ramen! Ah hah! Asian Pork Noodle Skillet. They had pork and chicken in the freezer. They would just need the fresh vegetables.

Tomorrow night I don't know how many women will be in the kitchen with me, as we prepare a triple recipe to serve 25! I'm very excited. I've never done a show, knowing I would not get paid with money. I'm practicing my new life story I've written, and still sharing the business opportunity. I'm using spring catalogs, they can keep to add some recipes to their collection. I'll let you know how it goes. We will be choosing the fundraising cooking show date soon, where the board of directors and case workers will be attending. I'm definitely showing off my knives, as this is what they could earn for the shelter.

Thank you for sharing (in more ways than one). This is a really wonderful idea.

I went tonight, and the person I booked it with forgot to write it on the master schedule so someone had already started a pot of spaghetti. She apologized, and I confimred my Oct. 20 date to teach, and she put it on the master schedule. I did get the fundraising show on my calendar for Nov. Then I see tonight it's "earning products month". Yippee.
